“I’ve taken a few programmes at GovTech Digital Academy to support my work in Human Resources (HR). Since taking those programmes, I’ve a deeper appreciation and sense of how data visualisation is present in many aspects of my work. The game changer for me was attending the Certified ScrumMaster course. The instructor was super engaging, helpful and clear; he de-mystified what Scrum was for a non-technical person like me. This improved my work outcomes, team cohesiveness and afforded opportunities for me to share within my circle of colleagues with HR.”
“Established practices often stem from routine procedures or perceived familiarity. The guidance of the exceptionally skilled instructors at GovTech Digital Academy (DA) can spark a shift in perspective on the execution and advancement of projects., DA also provides programmes that align with individual interests. For instance, an engineer can seamlessly acquire valuable insights by taking programmes in Product Management, thus broadening their horizons.”
“I found the GovTech Digital Academy to be an excellent resource for upskilling my competencies. The knowledgeable facilitators and exposure to practical components that can be easily applied to the workplace makes these programmes valuable investments. As someone who has attended multiple programmes, I highly recommend the GovTech Digital Academy for anyone looking to stay updated on the latest knowledge, create new relationships, establish rapport with other attendees and share your experiences with facilitators and fellow public officers."
